What is the 'Delay feature' and how do I use it?

Last Update date : 2017.09.27

Delay feature on Samsung dishwashers automatically starts the cleaning cycle at a later time. The delay start time can be adjusted from 1 hour to 24 hours.


Note: Depending on the model of your dishwasher the button positions may be different, however, the following instructions are still the same.


To set up a delay:

Step 1: Select the desired Cycle and Options for the load.

Step 2: Press the Delay Start button.

Step 3: To increase the delay start time, press or hold the Delay Start button until the desired time is reached.





Step 4: The Delay indicator and the display will flash. 




Step 5: Press the Start/Cancel button to begin counting down the delay time.

Step 6: The cycle automatically starts as soon as the time expires.


To cancel a delay: Press the Delay button during the count-down process.

To cancel a delay and a cycle: Press Start/Cancel once to drain and turn off the dishwasher or press Start/Cancel twice to turn dishwasher off without draining.
